Berle M. Lee
April 10, 1938 – July 28, 2018
Berle M. Lee was born April 10, 1938 in Moorehead, Iowa. He moved to Kansas City, Missouri shortly after high school graduation where he owned and operated a construction and concrete company. He was an entrepreneur and a visionary. There was nothing he could not fix with just a sledge hammer and piece of steel. His work is displayed in over 500 buildings in the Kansas City area. After his retirement, he enjoyed truck building and trading, always enjoying the challenge of a new deal. He was a kind and gentle man who would give his last dime to a person in need. Berle’s greatest love in life was his family. He enjoyed spending time with his sons and grandchildren and being part of their lives. He also enjoyed a good game of cards with friends and a good night at the casino, never fearing to go all in.
Berle is survived by his wife Mary of the home, sons Dennis (Gretchen), Dan (Dana) and Ronnie Lee, daughter Wendy, nine grandchildren, three great grandchildren, brother Gary (Earline), sister-in-law Cheryl (Shawn) and many nieces and nephews, as well as his beloved dog and faithful companion, Bella.
The family wishes to thank nurses Sue, Denise, Theresa, Kathleen, and Cathy for their true concern, comfort and love during his final days. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Wayside Waifs or Kansas City Hospice House.
Rest well my love until we meet again.

I have been holding you and Berle in my prayers, and those prayers have been for comfort for Berle and peace for both of you. I admire the strength you have demonstrated over the past several months, and your devotion to your husband.
Berle is now resting in peace, and I hope that all of your memories and time will help you heal. You are a true woman of Christ, and live your values; I know that you find comfort in the strength of God and that you are being held in his hands - he will get you through this and will assure you that Berle is also held in comfort. You will be together again...
Much love my dear friend,
